Here's a Peter Rabbit figure that I've owned for quite some time now. He's from about the 1930 to 1940 era and is made of spelter. Though most folks are familiar with the Beatrix Potter version of Peter Rabbit, this Peter Rabbit design was originally created by Harrison Cady who wrote and illustrated a Peter Rabbit comic strip, around 1905, and supplied the Peter Rabbit illustrations for many Thornton W. Burgess children's books in the very early part of the 1900's, of which I also have in my collection. He measures 8 1/2" tall and 4 1/2" front to back. Though he's experienced a bit of color loss over the years, I'm still happy to have him in my collection.
Thanks to you all for stopping in for a look!!
